According to a former IBM employee recently hired by Apple:
A district court in the USA doesn't agree.
"To the best of my knowledge, IBM does not design, manufacture or market consumer electronic products," says Papermaster, in a court document filed Thursday. "Instead, IBM focuses on high-performance business systems such as information technology infrastructure, servers and information storage products, and operating systems software," Papermaster notes.
"Apple, on the other hand, is in the business of designing, manufacturing and marketing consumer-oriented hardware and related products," says Papermaster, in documents filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
Doubtless, more to come.
